Despite the fact that the theme of my blog on the creation and promotion of blogs, I decided to write a post on the establishment of any sites (websites). I hope it will be useful for beginners in creating websites. Web site or just a website, literally means “place on the Internet.” Location can be designed for different purposes. In this article, I will focus on the question of how to build a website newbie.
So, you can create a site using 3 methods:
- Independently use knowledge of HTML and CSS
- With the help of free platforms
- With the help of the website designer
Learn HTML and CSS
First, the easiest option – to learn the basics of HTML and CSS language. The huge amount of network resources, this training. Just type in Yandex or Google – “lessons on HTML” and “CSS classes.” Really learn the basics in a couple of weeks and you can create for example, a single-site. Basic knowledge of these languages will save you tons of time and money in the future.
The downside is that you will be difficult to create a dynamic site easy to drive, such as an online store or a social network. You constantly need to fix the site directly through the body of the page in HTML. . This time, costly and inefficient
in many respects, these problems are solved by the next option – free platform for creating websites.
Free WordPress platform, Joomla, Drupal
Free platforms to create a site on the Internet – tens. Most importantly, choose a popular, so you can add many advanced features to keep up with the times. The most popular platforms for building sites are WordPress, Drupal and Joomla:
- The WordPress – a complete guide to the installation site on WordPress, read and see here . WordPress – is recognized as a blog platform, but it can easily turn into any website and online business card and online store.
- The Joomla – fairly easy to install. For more information about this CMS I wrote here .
- The Drupal – an alternative if Joomla and WordPress have not liked.
Services, the so-called site builder, you are offered without the knowledge of programming languages, create a website and manage it from the admin (admin panel). Less of this option is that the full source code of the engine is closed and you will not be able to manage the site 100%. Also, you will not be able to have your own domain name, your address will always be composed of 3 parts, for example, mojsajt.ucoz.ru.
Examples of such designers:
I am very much against the designers of sites, because you do not feel your site. It’s like a car ride on the machine box when mechanics you have a sense of the car.
This version of website builder can be recommended only to me, in that case, if you do not want to devote much time to his site, and simply want to understand what is this website. I personally do not recommend this option because, if you start to do the site, you have to start to do it efficiently.
In general, these services and platforms is sufficient to create a ready site. Create a site on the Internet for free is easy enough.
However, if you want to order a high-quality site, then surely you will have to turn to the professionals. Therefore, the choice is yours!
